Who We Are
Edgar Maranta School of Nursing is the result of merging of two nursing schools, which are; General Nursing Diploma Upgrading Course and Edgar Maranta School of Nursing. General Nursing Upgrading Course (GNDUC) was established in September 1994 with the purpose of upgrading Grade “B” Nurses to Grade “A” nurses through the course of two years duration, providing them with a diploma in general nursing and psychiatry or midwifery. The eligible candidates were those who had nursing certificates such as public health nurse, general nurse or midwives “B” with a minimum of three years of working experience. Edgar Maranta School of Nursing was established in 2004 with the purpose of training fresh candidates who have completed secondary schools with Grade “D” passes in Physics and Grade “C” passes in Chemistry and Biology to pursue Diploma in Nursing and for those with Grade “D” passes in all of those three subjects are enrolled for Certificate level. Both schools were owned by the Diocese of Mahenge up to February 2012 before the Inauguration of new Diocese of Ifakara. After the formation of new Diocese, the schools have been the property of Ifakara diocese due to Geographical location. In January 2013 these two schools have been merged into one school which is now called Edgar Maranta School of Nursing
